The Centre on Monday dismissed the proposal of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) to establish Sharia courts as unconstitutional. Union Minister of State for Law and Justice, PP Chaudhary, tells CNN-News18's Zakka Jacob that the AIMPLB’s proposal is unconstitutional. "If a court is being established, it has to be done in accordance to the Constitution. However, no body has the authority to establish its own court," said Chaudhary.
